Mail And Wire Fraud
Mail and wire fraud are some of the broadest federal charges that can be used to bring almost any case into federal court. Mail and wire fraud charges can be pursued in connection with most white collar crime cases.
Generally speaking, mail fraud/wire fraud exists when the U.S. Postal Service, FedEx, or other interstate carrier, or when internet, email, facsimile, radio, telephone, or other forms of wired communications are used in connection to a scheme to defraud someone. This can include communication that involves fraudulent solicitation to fraud-related financial transactions – such as a check or wire transfer of funds, mortgage fraud, or investment fraud.
After the financial climate of loan defaults and foreclosures in 2008, the federal government has become more active in investigating and prosecuting alleged mortgage fraud schemes. The government’s scrutiny of mortgage loans and bank transactions has led to innocent investors, sellers and brokers finding themselves facing federal mortgage fraud, real estate fraud and mail/wire fraud charges.
Mortgage fraud and real estate fraud involves a material misstatement, misrepresentation or omission relied upon by a lender (i.e., bank) to fund, purchase or insure a loan. There are various mortgage fraud schemes including silent second schemes, fictitious/stolen identity, inflated appraisals, foreclosure schemes, property flipping and air loans.
